Needful Things

Turn back the hands of time as you browse through the labyrinth of antiques, vintage paraphernalia, memorabilia and collectables that are on display at The New Junk Shop in Stanford. If vintage toys, early car registration plates, old gramophone players, silver pocket watches, wingback chairs and the thought of interesting art pieces tickle your fancy, then you are in for a treat. Every collectable imaginable and more can be found under one roof, and there are precious trinkets as well as interesting bits and bobs that form the blueprint of many generations gone by. Dinky cars, postcards from the 1950s, Toby jugs, Murano glass, cloisonné, brass fittings, medals of honour, classic furniture pieces and astonishing scarcities such as an authentic gentleman's carriage, all share equal pride of place. The New Junk Shop is also the offset point where you can sell all your old gems. Ahhh, if only antiques could talk…

The New Junk Shop’s Erwin Esterhuizen is a legend in the used goods and collectables trade. 
A visit to Erwin’s delightful emporium in Stanford is as much about extracting a twinkling smile out of this pleasingly eccentric gentleman, as discovering the treasure itself. 

A deep passion for all things interesting, rare and collectable has ensured that Erwin has spent most of his life dealing in other people's things. He is proud to say that he can recite from heart, the history behind every single one of his precious items in his store. His first shop was in Diep River in the Southern Suburbs and was aptly named ‘Yesterday's Bygones and Junk Store’.

What followed was years of buying, selling and trading in other peoples pre-loved or unwanted collectables. He gained notoriety with ‘Jintys Junk Shop’ in Long Street, Cape Town. The legendary shop was undoubtedly an institution in the antique and collectable world and, to this day, the former Mother City landmark is still spoken about with gusto by those who shopped there.

Erwin continues to deliver the same eclectic trove of treasures to entry-level treasure hunters, serious collectors and fellow antique dealers who find themselves in The New Junk Shop.

Some Inspiration

In 2003 a large platter designed by English ceramic artist, Clarice Cliff, was discovered on top of a wardrobe where it had gathered dust for 30 years. It was sold by Christie’s Auctioneers for nearly forty thousand pounds... just saying.
